Arthur Street sanitary trunk sewer and road reconstruction

About the project

The City will be reconstructing Wyndham Street South from York Road to the bridge that runs over the Speed River just south of Wellington Street East. Work will include the installation of sanitary sewers, storm sewer, watermain, curb and gutter, sidewalks, bike lanes and on–street parking. Final road design will provide one lane for vehicular traffic in each direction and on–road bicycle lanes as recommended by the Cycling Master Plan.

As part of the project planning, the City of Guelph completed a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) study in 2013-14 and the project proceeded to detailed design and construction.
